Jessica Simpson has been blamed for Dallas Cowboys’ loss to the New York Giants 21-17 on Sunday night.
Dallas Morning News columnist Tim Cowlishaw sniped:
“A lot of people thought Tony Romo made a mistake by taking off for Mexico with Jessica Simpson on the club’s off weekend. He had a chance to prove them wrong by delivering a typical Pro Bowl Romo performance Sunday.
“It didn’t happen.”
AP reported that that Romo’s loss certainly won’t help him “quiet everyone who accused him of mixed-up priorities for joining girlfriend Jessica joining Simpson on the beach in Mexico last weekend.”
Near a video on “The Jessica Simpson Factor,” the Dallas Morning News is running a poll on their site asking, “What do you think caused the Dallas Cowboys to lose Sunday’s playoff game?” Simpson is a popular answer.
Romo himself admitted the loss “hurts. It’s tough right now,” he said.
“I’ll take the blame and I’ll take the criticism here,” he added, trying to draw the attention away from Jessica. “That’s why we’re put in these positions.”
But Romo’s teammate, Terrell Owen said the loss ” is not about Tony. You guys can point the finger at him. You can talk about the vacation. And if you do that, it’s really unfair … we lost as a team.”
At the ZaZa hotel in Dallas, Simpson was overheard saying she was reconnecting with Dallas, “but that’s what happens when your boyfriend lives here,” according to the Dallas Morning News.
Simpson was not at the game on Sunday; the last time she showed up Romo “played the worst game of his career,” with top Dallas Cowboys fansite, The ‘Boys Blog, saying: “Is Jessica Simpson the football version of Memo Paris, the blonde bombshell who was kryptonite to Roy Hobbs’ Wonderboy in The Natural?”
The post continued: “Everybody’s due a bad day at the office, but if Romo plays like this next week, Jessica Simpson will become the most hated celebrity significant other since Yoko Ono.”
